BEATS & PIECES
ATLANTIC are insisting that they have signed Raze presents: Doug Lazy ‘Let It Roll‘ for the world, including the UK: however, the situation is complicated here as Champion (who have already promoed the single) have exclusive UK rights to all products created by Vaughan Mason using his studio “group” name Raze, but not automatically to other artistes’ releases on his Grove St. US label — which, it could be argued, in this case has only used the established Raze name, as the wording suggests, to help draw attention to and introduce protégé Doug Finley, who to all intents and purposes (other than that Raze always features normally anonymous guest vocalists) performs the self-penned single as a separate solo signing – the problem being that Raze still owes Champion an undelivered although paid for album and the UK label’s Mel Medalie was unwilling to fork out yet more money when Mason suggested that the Doug Lazy project was a separate deal (he subsequently nearly signed it to PRT until Medalie got heavy!), Mason now allegedly agreeing that right is on Medalie’s side (although there is talk of change to Vaughan Mason presents: Doug Lazy on future pressings!) and saying that he’ll sort things out with Atlantic is the States … watch this space … Champion owner Mel Medalie, incidentally, was the hairdresser for the original film of ‘Ferry ‘Cross The Mersey’ (his name is in the credits)! … Lamya, the female singer on Razette’s ‘Ready 4 Love’, is the traffic stopping Arabic origin girl who was with Vaughan Mason on Raze’s UK visit last month … Mike Shaft’s winning of the incremental (“community of interest”) radio licence for Manchester with his now at last to be a reality Sunset Radio, and ex-pirates FTP (For The People) winning the Bristol licence (both being black music stations of course), plus the Asian-aimed piratical West London Radio not too surprisingly winning the Hounslow licence, hopes are high that maybe sense will prevail and the mightily united KISS/SOLAR/S.O.U.L. consortium’s bid for the London FM licence will succeed and finally give the capital city a badly needed legal black music outlet (I can anticipate complete airwave anarchy breaking out if a black station doesn’t win!) … ‘The Two Billys’, Russell and Carruthers, are retiring to their Scottish castle and have sold to the Disco Mix Club their three London BlueBird record shops, which will retain the same name and carry on trading as usual (this deal excludes the Luton branch, where there has been a management buy-out) … Freddy Bastone has done some most unlikely Corporation Of One-style remixes, and vocal-less dubs, of — wait for it! — Bananarama’s ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘I Heard A Rumour‘, for future separate UK 12 inch release as well as inclusion in a remixed greatest hits album (the latter seemingly scheduled for the US if not also here) … Westside Records have now also released here the US mixes of Tyree ‘Hardcore Hip House’ (DJ International Records DJINX 11), the now 123⅕bpm Tyree’s Mix Hard, 123⅕bpm Deep Housetramental, 123¼-123-123⅕-0bpm Julian ‘Jumpin’ Perez Mix and 123⅖bpm Joe Smooth’s Too Deep Mix, originally reviewed on import and all totally different from the initial alternative UK mixes … Pressure Zone, whose excellent deep house revival of the O’Jays’ ‘Backstabbers’ was reviewed off white label last week, turn out to feature Juliet Roberts along with Nat Augustin, plus Marco Perry and Dave Clayton (the different mixes being labelled quite simply, in reviewed order, as Stab 1, 2, 3) … The Style Council’s commercial A-side turns out to be ‘Long Hot Summer 89 Mix’, relegating their instantly accepted new ‘Everybody’s On The Run’ to the flip … Timmy Regisford’s remixes of D Mob ‘Trance Dance’ are exclusive to the UK, Dancin’ Danny D’s mixes being out in the US as flip to ‘We Call It Acieed’ … Polydor have promoed a mystery white label called ‘Back In The Groove‘, an amazingly blatant Rick Astley soundalike 118⅘bpm cheerful canterer that is actually by ex-dancing champ Frankie Johnson (for June 12 release on Hand) … LA Mix’s repeated “get loose” sample of Aleem on their upcoming newie will only be included on instant collectors’ item promo pressings, Mike Stevens having re-recorded a close vocal facsimile as “everybody get loose” for commercial release … Mystique featuring Kid Valdez ‘Heartbreaker (I Can’t Understand)’ apparently samples the much sought The It ‘Donnie’ … US imports also include the ‘I’ll House You’ rewording girl group hip house Dopestyle ‘I’ll Bass You‘ (Bassment Records); Todd Terry remixed though UK originated acid house Funtopia ‘Beautiful People‘ (Idlers); Public Enemy Hammersmith concert sampling jittery muttering hip house Brickhouse featuring MC Joe ‘Feel The Bass‘ (Requestline Records); overly juddery rolling swingbeat Leotis ‘On A Mission‘ (Mercury) — his identically titled album being in dated early Eighties style … UK newies include the reissued classic if not by now over familiar Maze featuring Frankie Beverley ‘Joy And Pain’ (Capitol); PP Arnold souled superb classy if specialist burbingly drifting jazz-funk Pressure Point ‘Dreaming‘ (Viceroy Records); late Sixties style brass and organ funk instrumental The James Taylor Quartet ‘Breakout‘ (Urban); fairly routine hip house Cybertron ‘The Deliverance’ (WA) while on UK LP are the Delores Springer sung gentle calm sparse slow street soul Deluxe ‘Just A Little More‘ (Unyque Artists) and, to my mind tiresomely pitched over such long length, rapping Cookie Crew ‘Born This Way‘ (ffrr) … The Club Chart currently requires a higher points total than possibly ever before for records even to hit it at number 100=, there being such a crush of stuff struggling to get in: roadblocked just below last week’s with enough points normally to qualify were (the yo yo-ing) Dave Collins & Jacqui Jones, Velma Wright, Rickster presents KLE, Royal House featuring Ian Star, The Controllers LP, Coldcut LP, Tone Loc, Diskonexion, LaKim Shabazz 12 inch, Taravhonty, Candi McKenzie, Omen, Levert, Kidzstuff — meanwhile, chart completists should note that the positions of previous entries making perhaps their last appearance in the “Missing” Club Chart of two weeks ago were: 25 Corporation Of One, 28 Chanelle, 30 Bobby Brown ‘Cruel’, 34 Joyce ‘Fenderella’ Irby, 37 Gerald Alston, 48 El DeBarge, 49 Richie Rich, Deja, 51 Sharon Dee Clarke, 53 Guy, 57 Longsy D’s House Sound, 59 A Guy Called Gerald (US mixes), 60 Paul Simpson/Candi Staton, 62 K-9 Posse, 65 Cookie Crew, 74 Tyree (Double Trouble Mix), 77 Natalie Cole, 81 Today, 82 Cookie Crew (Danny D Remix), 91 Baby Ford, 96 Diana Ross, 97 Stezo, 100= Yazz, Dino, Jungle Wonz (armed with this info plus the “last week” positions in last week’s chart, if you really want to you can reconstruct the whole missing chart for yourself!) … Umbrella Seminar III at Hammersmith’s Novotel this Saturday/Sunday (20/21) is being put on by independent record labels, with the likes of Jon Jules, Simon Harris, Dave Lee and myself on the Dance Market panel at 3.15pm Sunday (it costs £60 to register, details on 01-226 3261, so I don’t expect to see many of you there!) … KISS-fm’s fourth Record Fair is at Highgate’s Jacksons Lane Community Centre this Sunday, 10am-4pm … South Eastern Discotheque Association’s disco exhibition SEDA 89 is at Gravesend’s Woodville Halls on Sunday, June 4, from noon-6pm … Dartford’s Flicks closed down a couple of Saturdays ago with a nostalgic final night featuring such old regulars as Colin Hudd, Chris Hill, Robbie Vincent, Tom Holland plus the more recent John Rush, Cosmic, Gary Sutton and Russell Melford — having been purchased by Premier Leisure it is being totally revamped into a so-called “up-market’ new venue for September reopening (I don’t recall it being exactly downmarket before!) … Robert Clivilles and David Cole have opened their own studio on New York’s 28th Street, hence The 28th St. Crew … Damon Rochefort points out that Nomad (as in his production of The Ragamuffin Number’) is of course Damon spelt backwards! … ‘Get Up Offa That Thing’ is the nation’s favourite James Brown recording of all time — at least, that was the result of Robbie Vincent’s poll on Radio I, with ‘Sex Machine’ and ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’ runners up! Profile, with a UK launch imminent, appear to have promoed their current Kechia Jenkins and Sweet Tee import hits here but have yet to get them, or anything else, to me – it seems Paul Oakenfold has lost my correct address … I’m outta here – BUT NOT FOR LONG!
INNER CITY ‘Paradise’ (10 Records DIX81)
The label’s ploy of separately promoting three tracks in advance of this eagerly anticipated and obviously big selling album maybe made sense after all, as in truth it’s a disappointingly patchy set with only the attractive wriggly strong 123⅓bpm ‘Do You Love What You Feel’ approaching the dancefloor power of the included 121⅓bpm ‘Good Life’, 120⅕bpm ‘Big Fun’ and 119⅓bpm ‘Ain’t Nobody Better’ hits, while the plaintive swirling 121⅔bpm ‘Set Your Body Free‘ and chunkily scurrying 121bpm ‘Secrets Of The Mind‘ are pleasant too, leaving the jerkily shuffling routine 121½bpm title track, philosophically muttered moodily spurting 0-127bpm ‘Inner City Theme‘, dull sparsely slinky 77⅔bpm ‘Power Of Passion‘ and flurryingly frantic 133½bpm ‘And I Do‘ frankly as fillers.
LEVERT ‘Gotta Get The Money (Extended Remix)’ (US Atlantic 0-86422)
The guys who, back on ‘Casanova’, were chiefly responsible for adding hip hop’s new jack swing to soul now return with an incredibly infectious jerkily jiggling 108½bpm swingbeat jumper that really leaps along with excitingly smacking syncopation, sampling James Brown and other rhythm elements through four excellent mixes.
SUPREME DJ NYBORN ‘Versatility’ (US Payroll Records PR-732)
Charted for months now by a few DJs who managed to find it when apparently flipped by MC Capone’s ‘Smoove Style’, this elusive languidly chatted funkily rolling unhurried 101⅙bpm rap ‘n’ scratch (dubwise semi-Inst. too) is — in this edition, anyway — flipped by an amusing conversationally started then scrubbingly scratched jigglier still 101⅙bpm ‘Versatile Extension‘ remix, plus the Freda Payne ‘Band Of Gold’ bass looping wordy fast 126½bpm ‘Rhymes From A Swift Mind’ (in three mixes). My thanks to ‘Jocks’ editor Tim Jeffery for the loan of his copy!
THE 28th ST. CREW ‘I Need A Rhythm’ (Vendetta Records SP5246)
Clivilles & Cole disguise themselves as The Done Properly Posse as creators of this somewhat risqué and foul mouthed house album, reworking some of their earlier rhythms in the process, every track tightly following the preceding one, the 0-125-125⅖bpm ‘I Need A Rhythm’, (0-)117⅕-0bpm ‘Inch By Inch‘, 124⅕-124bpm ‘Steppin’ Out’ and (0-)124⅕- 0bpm ‘Get It Up‘ being vocal while the basically instrumental side two really cooks through the continuously segued 120½bpm ‘Where’s The Party‘, 119½bpm ‘It’s In The Groove (No Games)‘ 115⅔bpm ‘Pump It Up (Let’s Groove)‘, and groove disrupting (0-)120⅓-122-121⅗-0bpm ‘Sex On The Dance Floor (LP Version)‘. Selling well in Central London, for what that’s worth.
MILES JAYE ‘Irresistible’ (US Island 91235-1)
Vying now for Luther’s crown, Miles J Davis has self-produced, penned and indeed largely played as well as sung a superb soul album that’s mainly downtempo but very classy, and an instant big seller — although probably more for home listening than floor filling — with the lushly romantic undulating (0-)82/41 bpm ‘I’ll Be There’, gently rolling repetitive gruff 101½bpm ‘Heaven‘, Grover Washington Jr soprano saxed chunkily swaying 0-111⅕bpm ‘Objective‘, smoothly jogging (0-)102bpm ‘Irresistible‘, drifting 53/106bpm ‘Love In The Night‘, tenderly crawling 26¾/80¼bpm ‘Next Time’, 43bpm ‘Slo-Dance’, 0-35½bpm ‘Message’, and 0-37/74-0bpm ‘Neither One Of Us’ (this latter, the set’s only non-original, being Jim Weatherly’s Gladys Knight oldie). Meanwhile, separately released, ‘Objective (12″ Version)‘ (US Island 0-96569) has been given a more snappily lurching though ambiguously tempoed 112/56bpm pausing and surging treatment, Grover’s sinuous sax being featured far more prominently from the start of the flip’s mellower jogging 0-112bpm Subjective Remix.
THE MAFIA ‘Talkin” (BBH Records BBH 5)
Waterlooville’s bedroom mixers have been at it again, creating a white labelled excellent 113⅕-113⅖-114-119¼bpm megamix out of such as the Jungle Brothers ‘Black Is Black’, Stetsasonic ‘Talkin’ All That Jazz’, Robert Howard & Kym Mazelle ‘Wait’, De La Soul ‘Jenifa (Taught Me)’, Manu Dibango ‘Soul Makossa’, Marva Whitney ‘Unwind Yourself’, Coldcut ‘People Hold On’ and Ten City ‘Right Back To You’ (this last superfluous fragment rather abruptly tagged on to the consequently untidy end, a pity), flipped by a 114-114⅕-114bpm ‘Dub Talkin’’ variation.
T.T.O. BOYS ‘Come Into My Nest’ (US Idlers WAR 042)
This strange Richard Berry & The Pharoahs ‘Louie Louie’-like West Indian flavoured breathily subdued shuffling and surging garage throbber in 119⅕bpm Club, 119bpm B Boy and Naughty Naughty mixes is flipped though by the probably better selling straightforwardly leaping and hoarsely harmonised (oddly like the Tams doing hip house!) ‘Housing All The Way‘, in 121⅕bpm Radio, 121⅕-0bpm Club and Another Club Mix versions.
KOOL MOE DEE ‘They Want Money (Extended Remix)’ (US Jive 1215-1-JD)
Sounding like a James Brown funk groove even if it isn’t (entirely), this Teddy Riley co-created terrific bass rumbled brassy (0-)106⅚bpm jiggler (in three mixes, plus the dated organ chorded wordier 87⅚bpm ‘Get The Picture‘) seems certain to be one of the bigger raps of coming weeks!
DONNA ALLEN ‘Can We Talk’ (US Oceana 0-96558)
Nicely timed as US follow-up to clash awkwardly with the belated UK release of ‘Joy And Pain’, this Clivilles & Cole remix is a brightly lurching and leaping frisky sort of “purple swingbeat” fusion, in their 113⅓-0bpm Club Mix and gimmicky stuttering Radio Remix, snappier 113⅔bpm Dub Mix, plus its much rawer original 0-114bpm jerkier LP Version. Joan Rivers presumably inspired the title line.
CULTURE CLASH DANCE PARTY ‘Love Fever’ (Jive CCDP R1)
Led by Scotland’s Edith Sitwell lookalike vocalist Judy McKeown, the acrobatic group’s energetic stomper from mid-winter is now issued fully for the first time after Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley has remixed it into a catchily tumbling typical (and less distinctive?) 118bpm house backbeater, in his Silk, Instrumental, and beefier dubwise Underground Mixes, plus group leader/producer Hamish ‘808’ MacDonald’s much more subtle cultures blending sinuously bubbling 117⅘bpm D Town Mix.
NEW BLOOD ‘Touch Me (Te Quiero)’ (US Smoking TAI 126617)
Carlos ‘After Dark’ Berrios created cowbell clonking and samples weaving jiggly burbling Latin hip hop flavoured though quite funky percussive semi-instrumental flowing fluidly along through its 119-118⅘bpm Club Edit and Instrumental, 119bpm Radio Edit, and 119-119⅕bpm Berrios Breakdown, overlaid by a girl muttering “te quiero” (Spanish for “I love you”) between more heartfelt calls of “touch me baby”.
GORDON NELSON JR. ‘Pump Up The Music’ (US Spin City SCR 21956)
Created by Gordon with Intense, this busy bass burbled, piano plonked and girls backed frantic 122½bpm New Jersey house galloper in four mixes is most wailing in its Girly Girl Mix but is selling more for the throbbing semi-instrumental Underground Intense Mix, which really shifts.
OMAR ‘I Don’t Mind The Waiting’ (Congo DPST 5, via JetStar)
Imagine several choppily staccato Al Jarreaus weaving counterpoint harmonies through an eccentrically jolting 100⅙bpm jaunty exotic beat and some scratching breaks to get a good idea of this terrific unusual delight (instrumental flip), still only on white label but likely to explode!
HEAVY D & THE BOYZ ‘We Got Our Own Thang (Club Version)’ (US Uptown Records MCA-23942)
Producer/co-writer Teddy Riley adds an important new melodic input (likely to be seen as significant in retrospect) to this jaunty tongue twiddily-diddily-diddily twiddling catchy strong wriggly swingbeat-ish (0-)114-0bpm loping and smacking lively rap, with some clever James Brown scratches, and an amusingly accented slow intro that seems deliberately based on broad rural English enunciation for some reason (instrumental/acappella flip), good fun.
MAXIMUM STRENGTH ‘Rock This Party’ (US International House Records IHR-008)
Bad Boy Bill produced frantically enthusiastic rapping and “woo yeah” shouting although largely samples built hip house leaper, it 121¾bpm Club, 121⅔bpm Hardcore, and (0-)121⅔bpm House Mixes, basically very unoriginal but kicking so hard that you’ll be carried along by all its surface excitement — so, good while the craze lasts!
MINK featuring 2WICE THE TROUBLE ‘Hey! Hey! Can You Relate?’ (FON DJ FON T18)
Still apparently only on promo prior to signing to a major label, this wild and frantic 122bpm mix-up of urgently rumbling and tumbling famous percussion break beats behind bursts of wordy fast rap (in three mixes plus acappella) was created and fiercely scratched by Sheffield’s 17 years old Technics UK DJ Mixing Championships finalist Mink, who’s a lot neater and more impressive under these studio conditions.
TONY TERRY ‘Forget The Girl’ (US Epic 49 68784)
From the original motion picture soundtrack ‘TAP’, this Ted Currier produced at first quite calmly lurching though vocally anxious pshta pshta-ing chugger gets increasingly het up as it builds excitingly through Todd Terry-type samples to end up a nagging stormer, in its 113⅔- 0bpm Extended Remix, starker 112⅖-0bpm Radio Version, acidic 113⅔-0bpm Midtown Mix and 115bpm Burn The House Down Basement Beats.
MARK IV ‘It’s A Mean World (Remix By Marley Marl)’ (US Tuff City TUF 128045)
Originally out last autumn, when it meant little, this Patrick Adams created but now Marley Marl remixed impassioned male soul vocal group’s 120⅕-120⅖bpm uncluttered striding bounder is in gospel rooted timeless tradition (complete with sobbing counterpoint) while the bass boomed and piano plonked rhythm is in garage/house style, with a shrill synth chorded less vocal 120⅕-120⅖-0bpm TV Track Mix Flip. Worth hearing.
BE BIG ‘Guilty (Depth Charge Mix)’ (10 Records TEN X 258)
Created by the group’s Jo Dworniak and Duncan Bridgeman (ex-I Level), this resonant bass rumbled rolling 114bpm jangly jiggler has some bursts of male “not guilty” rap but is mainly sung by Gloria Robakowski in garage-ish style, except the whole thing sounds interestingly out of the norm (alternative edit, and less good jittery acidic 0-120¾-0bpm ‘Get On Board’).
RALPHI ROSARIO ‘Rendition’ (US Hot Mix 5 Inc Records HMF-EP-12)
The track that’s selling this 12 inch EP is the Diva III wailed and talked sparsely skittering and thumping wriggly (0-)124⅕-0bpm ‘Get Up, Get Out’, others being the jittery 123bpm ‘In The Night (Semi Hip Hop Mix)‘, frantic 0-126⅖bpm ‘I Want Your Love (The Dedicated Mix)‘ and 139¾bpm ‘Daddy, Daddy (Dance Mix)‘.
M-D-EMM ‘Get Hip To This! (Homeboys Revenge)’ (Republic Records LICT 022R), fast dense nervy ‘Wrath Of Kane’-ish 123⅘-123½bpm rap remix flipped by a more airily galloping but still 123⅘-123½bpm DJ Delight alternative hip house treatment;
DEBBIE GIBSON ‘Electric Youth (The Electro Mix)‘ (Atlantic A8919TX), very strong truly early Eighties “electro” style juddery leaping 125⅘-0bpm Shep Pettibone remix, with house samples overdubbed freakier dubs as flip;
CIRCUIT featuring Koffi ‘Shelter (Remix)‘ (Collision CIR 121R), anguished wailing introed more loosely cantering bright new (0-)121bpm treatment, plus an 121bpm 7″ mix, replacing the Version and Wicky Wacky Mix as flip to the original A-side.
